Installing a UL350is in a Cruzer and am pondering a header tank. There seems to be a lot of good reasons to have one a only a few not to. The possibility of voiding a fuel line during uncoordinated flight is not a worry with a header tank. A duplex fuel valve is not required. A header tank adds a bit to the expense and has a couple of gallons of fuel in the fuselage.

I would appreciate hearing from anybody with some experience and advice with this method.

Yep with 30 to 45 minutes reserve, you should never be that low and that high that in steep descent for long periods of time.  Header tank is just that many more potential failure points unless really needed.  But these are E-AB and to each his own.
